Frequently Asked Questions : Employee Access & Disclosure

Why do I need to change my password regularly?

Passwords are currently the most vulnerable entry-point to our IT resources. By changing your password on a regular basis, you may prevent unauthorized access by someone who has guessed your password. Hackers use automated tools to guess passwords. Use of lower- and uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols increases the difficulty to guess your password. Never share your password. Passwords that are easy to guess provide hackers and other malicious users with an easy means to gain access to our IT systems. If you suspect your password has been compromised, please change it immediately.
